DALLAS (Sept. 20, 2004) – Greyhound PackageXpress® (GPX) today announced it is expanding its expedited package delivery service within the United States. GPX customers in thousands of communities soon will be able to ship packages door-to-door within 350 miles for same-day or early next day delivery.
To penetrate new markets, GPX is working with 4SameDay Couriers, a division of Sidewinder N.A., Ltd. Corp. The 4SameDay member and affiliate network will resell GPX services to their customers in major metropolitan markets across the United States. 4SameDay members and affiliates also will become the courier service for GPX package pick up and delivery for its door-to-door service offering.
“We look forward to expanding our expedited package delivery service into new markets throughout the United States,” says Dave Phillips, vice president of GPX. “This opportunity assists us in achieving our growth goals as well as bringing additional visibility to the affordable and convenient GPX services we offer.”
GPX door-to-door service not only provides customers with expedited delivery, but it also includes more convenient later pick up and earlier delivery times, typically at a better price than most other delivery options available to customers. The new program initially will roll out in Texas, expanding nationwide by the end of the year.
“We continue to look for same-day solutions to pass along to our customers,” says George Best, president, 4SameDay Solutions/Sidewinder N.A. “This new program allows us to provide our customers with alternative shipping solutions that can save time and money.”
